The Center was established in 1994 and is one of the more than 480 Funding Information Network partners of The Foundation Center, an organization that provides data to U.S. foundations and corporate direct givers. It is located on the library's main level in the Reference area and is available for use by any person or agency at no cost during library hours. Special information and materials may be obtained upon request from the library at a reasonable charge.

Books, directories, annual reports, bulletins, and newsletters are among the materials included in the library's holdings. The IRS-990-PF foundation annual returns are available at the Foundation Center's public information website. The subscription online service Foundation Directory Online Professional is available for use only in the library and brings together in one place information contained in many of the directories published by the Foundation Center.

To help you master the world of foundation fundraising, proposal writing, and all that goes into getting the grants you need, the Foundation Center offers short web-based training courses (webinars) that are free of charge.  These webinars are interactive, scheduled for certain dates and times, and require pre-registration.  If the set dates and times do not fit with your schedule, you may also listen to a pre-recorded, non-interactive version of the webinar.  A link to this recording is provided on the descriptive page for each webinar.

Ask the Online Librarian
Do you have a question about philanthropy?  The Foundation Center's Online Librarian will be happy to help you.  The question can be emailed to them and it will be answered as soon as possible.   You may also chat live with a member of their reference staff.   Chat hours are Monday through Friday 9:30am-4:30pm Eastern Time.

(Disclaimer: Questions asked by users of the "Ask the Online Librarian" service (email or chat) are answered by the staff of the Foundation Center headquarter's office located in New York City.)
